A group of United States congressmen called on the International Olympic Committee to delay the 2022 Olympics which are set to be held in Beijing and relocate them if China "does not change its behavior" related to the Uyghurs.

"No Olympics should be held in a country whose government is committing genocide and crimes against humanity," the lawmakers said in a letter sent to the organization's President Thomas Bach.

The group includes Senators Jeff Merkley, Marco Rubio, and Representatives Jim McGovern and Chris Smith.
